The glow in the forest.

Fall. And, Halloween. All in one.

I took a late dusk walk with one of the dogs. I didn’t think I could even take this picture. But, I tried. You are looking at the finished result after a little fine tuning and a little tinkering to make the picture glow. There is a lesson to be learned here. No matter what you think, just shoot the picture. Cull later. Not while you are out.


Storyteller drew all sorts of comments. On Facebook and Twitter, too. I guess that image protection and online theft are a big deal. For me and some of my colleagues it has been a big deal for a long, long time. It’s like fighting a war. Strategies, tactics and technology changes quickly. Very quickly.

In order to make my point again. Copyright attaches to any kind of created work the minute the piece is finished. In photography that means when you push the shutter release button the picture is copyrighted. There does not have to be a copyright symbol or words like “without express written permission” anywhere near the image. That’s the law. In The United States. Most countries honor it. France takes that a step further. I think you can be guillotined. Kidding. I think. To collect big money damages you must file with the copyright office. This is no big deal. You can file online. You can file collections of similar things. For $47.

To be sure, some countries only pay lip service to the copyright laws. China is one. Thailand is another. It’s not as long a list as you might think.

That’s it.

Happy Sunday. Or, Monday. Wherever you are.
